I don’t know why I keep noticing these detoxing articles although today I do.
I made a turkey for the first time this weekend and messed up making the gravy. After a few hours of suffering from all the fat in the gravy I have come to the sudden realization that I would like to detox it right out of my body
When we want to detoxify our bodies naturally, we usually look to herbs to cleanse our bodies. You can’t get any more natural than greens that come from the good earth, now can you?
However, how efficient are herbs in taking impurities out of our system? This article features a list of Pros, Cons and general guidelines in using herbs as a natural detoxification of your digestive system.
The Good news about herbal detoxing
1. Herbal detoxing is all natural. There’s no suspicious complex formula or secret ingredient, so you don’t have to worry about bloating and other side effects brought on by strange chemical reactions. You should find out, though, which herbs will do what to your body.
Herbs that are known to cleanse your digestive system are Haritaki, Bayberry and Flaxseed. After cleansing your system, it would be great if you could tone your internal organs also by drinking lime or lemon juice. Think of it as a wash-and-rinse procedure.
Herbalists who advocate herbs for cleaning your colon will recommend drinking a lot of water a few days before your actual cleansing, to ready your stomach for cleansing.
2. Herbs can be taken with your food and drink. Enemas are forced into your body, while laxatives and psyllium force things out of your body. Both are rather violent procedures.
Herbs don’t have this violent effect, because they need not be rammed down your throat, nor up your you-know-what. They don’t have to be injected into you either.
You can mix them into your food, which will even give your meals better flavor. Or you can drink them as tea.
3. It doesn’t hurt your pocket. Like we said, it’s not manufactured in some high technology lab. Herbs can even be grown in your very own backyard, or even a small corner of your terrace if you don’t have a backyard, and if you have the space and the facilities.
The bad news about herbal detoxing
1. Herbal detoxing could take some time. Well, you can’t be expected to scarf a bale of herbs down in one sitting, which is probably the amount you need for instant results.
Using herbs to detoxify your body doesn’t ensure an immediate full-body cleansing. Some nutritionists who advocate the use of herbs will advise you to give yourself four weeks for a full cleansing, separate from the two days of drinking more water than you do regularly to prepare your body for detoxification.
In cleansing using herbs, patience is definitely a virtue.
2. Herbal detoxing may not be the complete answer. A full cleansing using herbs will mean your bowels are rid of unhealthy wastes and bacteria, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that your digestive and circulatory systems are completely clean and devoid of bacteria also, nor working the way they should.
Herbs can clean out your bowels, but will take more time to really clean your system.
However, if you’re patient enough, herbs will do quite well. If not, try other natural detoxification methods, such as fasting, or oxygen-magnesium capsules that stimulate oxidation in your digestive system.
